Admissions

International Montessori School is a place where children cultivate their natural love for learning, independence, and community through a multicultural, multilingual curriculum and environment. We welcome a diverse community of students and families from a variety of cultures, linguistic backgrounds, and cultural experiences such as living abroad. Not all of our families know another language, but all appreciate the gift that other languages and cultures bring to their children and their families. While love of language and culture is key to joining the IMS community, appreciation for the methods and outcomes of the Montessori approach is also important.

Parents seeking the richness a language immersion program offers and the academic strength provided through the student-centered, integrated, hands-on approach are encouraged to visit our school for an observation, a tour, and an open house. We are currently considering applications on a rolling basis.

Our Admissions Process

There are three key steps to the admissions process.
Tour
Interested families should contact our office administrator to schedule a virtual tour with our director of enrollment prior to completing the application. This meeting is for parents/caregivers to get an overview of our culture, programs and ask questions. The tour is typically 45 - 60 minutes.

Once you have completed a virtual tour, you are welcome to apply for your child's admission to International Montessori School. In addition to your child’s application, we ask that you submit school records and teacher referrals. Links to request these forms are available on our Admissions Process page.

Meet
After the virtual tour and application package are completed, our office administrator will schedule a meeting for you with our Head of School. This is a time to get to know each other, share more detailed information in relation to your child, and ask questions of each other that have not previously been addressed.
